Like every two weeks, and it is difficult to be caught by surprise, WineHQ launched a few moments ago a new development version of your software to run Windows applications on systems other than Microsoft's. What they have made available to anyone who wants to try it is WINE 6.7, the delivery that happens to the one launched a fortnight ago which introduced improvements such as the Mono engine updated to v6.1.1.
As usual in this phase, the developer team has published two sections, one in which it mentions 44 bug fixes and the other in which they tell us about all the changes introduced, 397 touch-ups this time. Although there have been several developers who have contributed dozens of patches and improvements, the work done by Zebediah Figura is noteworthy, who has taken care of 82 of the almost 400 changes introduced this weekend.
WINE 6.7 highlights
It is somewhat striking that this week's list of news mentions 7 changes, when the usual is 3 or 4 plus the last one that they always mention.
- NetApi32, WLDAP32, and Kerberos libraries converted to PE.
- More work from the Media Foundation.
- Improved WOW64 file system redirection.
- More Plug & Play driver support.
- Raw keyboard input device.
- Various bug fixes.
Interested users can now install WINE 6.7 from its source code, available in this y this other link, or from binaries that can be downloaded from here. In the link from where we can download the binaries there is also information to add the official project repository to receive this and other future updates as soon as they are ready for systems like Ubuntu / Debian or Fedora, but there are also versions for Android and macOS .
The next development version will be WINE 6.8, and it will almost certainly arrive next Friday, May 7. Among what you will introduce, the only thing we can assure you is that will come with hundreds of small improvements and corrections as usual.
